I have been working at my current job for only 6mths, of course there were people coming and going. Well, after our assistant quit we were without for about 4 mths. Until they transferred this girl from another store to fill the position. Ever since she stepped foot in the door she has been raising hell, from getting people fired to making people quit. She even made the store manager quit. So she took it upon herself that she was store manger and i was het assistant. At that time im like hell yeah more miney and hours for me. Little did i know i was in fir a rude wakening. When i finally get promoted she started bossing me around, writing long list of things to do and so on. She went as far as taking credit for things other people(like me) has done! Never once she mention any names. Now the region manager praises her and the district manager knows what's what's but want stand up for us. One morinung u decided to give her keys back to the store, but five minutes before she should up the new store manager did. Of course he rold me not to give the keys back and i listened. Ever sunce he stepped in the door she has been calling out often making him work doubles. I guess my question is, How would you go about? Would you ask to take all her hours that way she gets two days a week making her want to quit? Thanks for you answers in advance!!!!

Well I think she deserves the same treatment she was giving to others definitely. I am wondering if she didn't get transferred because they were fed up of her attitude at the other store. Did she hold the same position at her old store as she does at this one? If not I'd say it's power hunger that drove her to be an uber witch.

Don"t be scared to ask respect from your boss. If your boss is angry every time you did a mistake or not, calm down because maybe he/she is too pressured. Most bosses are really strict and sometimes mean because they don’t want people to abuse them especially when you are in that high level position. It"s part of their job. They hate mistakes.

I use to be a manager of a store and seen alot of stuff. Money hunger and people with selfishness and lets things go to their head and over power know it alls..However I find overcoming with kindness is best in all situations and I find also going to higher ups is always best in discussions. If they do not hear how one is then confront them with another hearing you also two people or three together and in a nice way ask questions tell them how you fill and let others confront them also if they feel the same way and then without anger one will see the wrong and maybe will change. worth the chance then gossip and hurt feelings later on . one sometimes cannot see themself over doing things and taking from others, until it is brought up.. I know they train people to be snobs sometimes but go over head and call a meeting and get the facts all in and it is better to get it in the open and out the door ..satisfy ..not destroy..think it out take notes and then discuss it friendly in the open mature like way...if you want more hours then state it where at least 2 or 3 know it to and then ask why if you do not get them when others do etc...
